Monk Dies of Mesothelioma

A New York man living as a monk in the UK died of mesothelioma recently at the age of 86. As a young man, he served as a pilot during World War II and received his education at Harvard. He was very active in the Catholic Church, and eventually moved to Caldey Island in the UK to pursue a life as a monk. There, he lived and worked at the monastery for several years.

When he was diagnosed with mesothelioma, it was unknown where he might have come into contact with asbestos. While there are many possibilities, he may not have been aware of the asbestos. It is possible that his time in the military exposed him to asbestos, or perhaps he was exposed at any other point in his life. It is impossible to tell at this point.

Mesothelioma can take up to 50 years to develop after exposure. This makes it difficult to diagnose, especially if you are unaware of exposure. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact the veterans mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-220-9341.
